    Jack Thompson vs. Mark Methenitis

    In July '09 Jack Thompson was featured in a debate regarding game classification and restrictions, against pro-videogame attorney and activist (whathaveyou) Mark Methenitis. It was hosted at the ScrewAttack Gaming Convention in Dallas, TX. Does anyone know where I can find the full 60minute debate for download or stream? The original video on the ScrewAttack site won't buffer. Thanks muchly.

    fundies say the darndest things

    http://www.fstdt.net/Default.aspx I came across this after following a thread of YouTube videos, I can't say I remember how I got onto the topic of atheism, but this link popped up somewhere. Quite amusing stuff. I'm not making a statement, opinion, or stance on anything. This is just for a laugh. That's all.

    heavy dumbbells

    I've been looking here there and everywhere for some >50kg dumbbells, but any I find are $400+ per pair (of course the heavier they are from there, the more they cost) anyone know of any cheaper alternatives?... and don't say the barbell! much obliged

    heavy dumbbells

    haha oh dear :P yeh same here kikz, I use em for shoulders and chest and also back I've searched on ebay, no luck. Are there any kind of places that sell second hand things and such? As you said kikz, like a gym that is shutting down. But where can I find them? All fitness stores I see only go up to 50kg... I guess that means you gotta go to a gym but I've put too much money into my gym setup at home than to run off and join a gym.

    A question about the speed of light

    well there's really no answer to that as of yet. the answer lies not with the understanding of the fundamentals and workings of light, it has to do with time we live in a temporal universe, atleast on macroscopic scales and within these classical dimensions. Observations tell us that time is the function of change. Does being ageless mean that time doesn't apply? Is ageless synonymous to timeless? Of course it is. Age denotes the progression of one particle transitioning from one state into another. Or do we need a revision of the word age? If time doesn't apply, this must mean that the photons dwell in a timeless state, where every moment that ever was or is to be, happens at one time. is time written past and future, for whatever duration it extends to? If so, why does it appear to act in one direction, at a finite speed? temporal segments can be divided into the smallest denominations (dividing the planck length by c) and leaves us with individual blocks of time... but what is it that ends one block and initiates the next? (think about this: you fire an arrow at a target, but first it must reach the 1/2 way mark of the distance to the target. Before it can do that, it must reach 1/2 the distance of 1/2 the distance -- 1/4. If these divisions keep on growing, how can the arrow possibly reach it's target?) There are just too many questions that need be answered before such a question can be deduced. Very good question by the way.

    steel issues

    How does one go about getting the tarnish off 1095 carbon steel? as well as minor superficial scratches? I've been using Silvo but to no avail. Dont really wanna do anything further without getting some help from people who are experienced in this area.

    Is it rude to do this?

    I don't think it's rude. To me, it's always been a case of efficiency and time management. You handle things as they finish, you don't wait for the entire table to finish then have 8 sets of plates, cutlery and glasses shoved down your throat. At the end of the day, you're in a place of business.

    A science question.

    Regarding that article, Volition, I knew space wasn't a complete vacuum, and that vibrations do indeed travel through the scarce atoms that there are... but we can't hear it, so I thought that's the answer he was looking for. Interesting to note though that seismic waves are a form of sound. Never really looked at it that way before :)

    Oh, I see where this is heading. If a tree falls in the woods...

    steel issues

    Well technically it's tarnish. It's a film of reactant that's formed on the metal after the outermost layer undergoes a chemical reaction... in this case it was my natural skin oils >.< Rust is an oxidation process, so it's essentially a destruction of the metal. Yeh I need to take it down, and it's gonna happen again in future no doubt, but I want to remove the scratches and polish at the same time, so I'm left with a mirror finish. Does the word Micromesh mean anything to you? Bunnings dont know a fuckin thing about it :-\

    A science question.

    Sound needs a physical medium to travel through, after all, its only vibrational patterns. Space itself is a vacuum, thus devoid of any kind of medium through which sound could travel. Yes a meteor would cause sound, but if there were vacuum between you and the meteor, you would not hear it.

    So...Whos gonna import Alien Versus Predator?

    i just cant fathom the ignorance and ill-informed stupidity that comes out of Atkinson's mouth... he seems to make up strange, perverted scenarios in games which have nothing even remotely similar to what's described in said scenario

    LFD2 - quirky AI

    Who cares its the same thing. I totally got what he ment. well pardon me if I happen to prefer the game being discussed spelled correctly. Call me a perfectionist. And FYI it's not the same thing. The game is called Left 4 Dead 2. Not Left For Dead 2. LFD2 could be something else entirely. what other game could it possibly be, at this time of year, 2 weeks after the release?

    LFD2 - quirky AI

    yeh one thing that shits me is that they don't shoot the smokers or hunters, they prefer to run all the way over to you and release you by shove also, when they pick up adrenaline, if they are down on health they use it immediately
